Christian Life

Do You See Things Differently As You Grow in Your Faith?

Many people grow up in Christian families, attending church together and following their parents’ Christian traditions. When a child transitions into adulthood, they may continue on with what’s familiar regarding their faith, and with similar passion and devotion. Or they may continue on simply because it’s what they’re used to, but their devotion is lacking.

Then there are those who just set their faith aside the minute they leave their family home, deeming that the Christian life was their “parents’ thing” and not their own.

It’s usually later in life when many of these same people turn back to their faith, and for various reasons. It’s the moment in which they begin to grow in their faith again.

Following is a clip in which Candace Cameron Bure discusses when she began growing in her faith.

For Candace, it was when she became a parent that she began evaluating her faith. I can totally relate to that. Additionally, she realized that her eating habits were a reflection on her relationship with God, because her body is a gift from God. She realized she should be taking care of that gift.

Ultimately, everything in our lives change when we grow with God, such as our attitude, our self-discipline and our character. When we grow with Christ, we see everything differently, don’t you think?

Hey sweet girls! Was there a moment in your life when you felt your relationship with God begin to grow again? Did you see everything differently? How?

    My faith began again when my son Jayden was born and my depression has been fading thanks to my relationship with God. He has given me strength to be the best mother I can be and to be the best role model for my son. I realized this when all my troubles seemed to disappear and I have shared more smiles than I have in a lifetime.

    My faith became a reality when I left home into college and my own apartment. It was a big time away from my parents and today I’m still challenged everyday

    Yes, there was a moment. Actually, it’s very LONG moment. 🙂 I have recently been home schooled for the past 3 years, because we felt like I was suppose to be at home for the “middle school” years.( I was actually home schooled K-2nd and got put in 3rd- 5th) At the end of those 3 years, my parents and I prayed really hard about whether I was to stay home schooled for high school or got to public school. We sensed strongly that I was suppose to go to public school. Let me say, public school is a whole new ball game. 🙂 If you are not firmly planted in God’s word, you can be led astray very quickly. You come to a face to face decision of being a Christian because that is what you grew up with, or is that what YOU believe. I have just finish my first semester, and with this semester, I have grown in my relationship with God so greatly. From going from a protected home school environment to a totally opposite public school environment, I have seen God work mightily in not only my life, but in the lives of my classmates. The thing I see differently is that you can never underestimate what God can do in your life and the lives of the people around you. 🙂

    I knew my relationship with God was growing because I feel His prescense a lot more,and I pray a lot more often.

    I was at a Christian camp called SuperSummer, and the last night they asked people to come up to the alter. I’d grown up with a Christian background, but thats when I realized I had just been “Christian on Sundays,” if you know what I mean. After that, I started to realize that God was really there in everything I do, I feel like he became more solidly embedded in my life
